3.0 out of 5 stars Where's the manual??, 14 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm sure this is probably a great tool, but where are the instructions? It came with a number of blades and accessories, but what are they all for? What can they be used for and what should they not be used for? How should one get the best out of this tool?
The only documentation was a few unhelpful pages (the majority safety related) in the middle of a multi-language booklet.
A tool like this (which will be unfamiliar to most people) needs a decent instruction manual to show people how to use it to the best of its capabilities. I'm sure this tool is capable of many great things, but I'll have to find out by trial and error!

Does what it says on the tin (or should that be box). A more attractive way of giving a gift card as a present.

4.0 out of 5 stars Upgraded version of card supplied. Easy installation and works a treat with Windows Media Center, 17 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fast delivery from Kubik. On opening the box, I saw that they had sent me the TBS6285 instead of the 6284 which I had ordered. This has screw connectors and, at first, I thought they had sent a satellite card rather than Freeview. But it turns out that this is just an upgraded version of the 6284, and that they had supplied an adapter for the normal UHF aerial connector.

The setup software was supplied on a mini-CD which was not compatible with the slot-loading drive on my media centre PC. But I was able to download the drivers from the TBS website.

Installation was very simple with no problems, and Windows Media Center (under Windows 7) recognised the tuners and successfully found many channels.

The image quality is fine, both in standard and HD. If it were not for the minor problems mentioned above, I would have given five stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars No good on carpets, despite claims!, 23 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Their claims:
"You'll always get precise results no matter what floor is under your scales" and
"for the first time, weighing on carpets and other uneven floors is no longer a dream"
are simply untrue. Moving from a hard floor to a thin carpet gives a difference of 2kg!
Just moving the scales around on my carpeted bathroom floor gives a variation of over 1kg.
It is easy to see why this is; the back is made of flimsy plastic that easily flexes.
Pros:
Nice styling, clear display, easy to operate, just step on - no tapping.
On a hard surface, it gives consistent readings, stepping on and off a number of times.
Picking up small weights and stepping back on shows more or less the expected increase.

I have found a workaround which is to stand it on a square of 18mm MDF and then it gives the same readings between a hard surfaces and carpets. But I should not have to do this! What a shame they did not spend a few more pence and make the back from pressed steel instead of plastic!

3.0 out of 5 stars Book is a series of article reprints, 3 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was hoping for a good introduction to using routers. This book is instead a collection of magazine article reprints. Individually, each article is good but they do not hang together well as an introductory book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality, 3 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The course side is very soft and wears away as it is being used, leaving a non-flat surface. The other side is still quite course and not fine enough for finishing.
